    Oldham (2007)

I was invited by the NYC based architecture firm REX to make a video piece for the occasion of their participation in the Canary Islands Architectural Bienale. I have always been interested in architecture but had no idea that in doing this I would come to see and understand in an intimate and very real way all the things involved to make a building happen. Over the next months I traveled a number of times to Louisville, Kentucky with the charge of making an installation about the concerted efforts being made to conserve land and the rural character of the landscape in the outlying county of Oldham just north of Louisville, Metro. I made two films: one, a series of interviews of a number of extraordinary people deeply involved in conceptualizing the future development of Oldham county; and the other a multi-screen film of sounds and images of the varying characteristics of the land and the encroaching developments set upon transforming it.
